The British Museum’s big summer blockbuster exhibition is on the history of Indigenous Australia, of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture. It is an extraordinary story that goes back 60,000 years, the oldest in human history.
The exhibition brings together artefacts from the National Museum of Australia as well as from the British Museum’s own collection. It includes objects that came from Captain Cook’s journey to Australia in 1770 — a shield picked up by one of Cook’s crew for instance — a 19th century turtle shell mask from the Torres Strait Islands, and art by leading modern day indigenous artists, including Yumari (1981) by Uta Uta Tjangala.
Hollywood actor Bradley Cooper stars in the stage play of The Elephant Man over the summer, transferring from its Broadway run.
Cooper, making his West End debut, stars alongside Patricia Clarkson as Mrs Kendal and Alessandro Nivolo as Dr Treves in Bernard Pomerance’s 1977 play about the real life of severely disfigured John Merrick.
One of the joys of summer in this city is the outdoor cinema screens that pop up all over the place. London is a fabulous backdrop for a night under the stars watching a mix of classics such as The Graduate to a recent release such as The Theory of Everything.
The Courtauld Gallery’s summer exhibition looks at incomplete artworks from its collection. Unfinished … Works from the Courtauld Gallery brings together paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture from the Renaissance to the 20th century that for a variety reasons were never completed.
In some cases the artist died or was unhappy with the artwork and discarded it halfway through, giving a fascinating view into the process of creating art through different periods of history. Then there are the works left deliberately unfinished. From the Renaissance to the Impressionists, artists have left their works for the viewer to complete in their mind.
Rory Kinnear is starring in a new version of Franz Kafka’s The Trial over the summer. The play — a new adaptation by Nick Gill — is on at the Young Vic, a great little theatre putting on interesting productions (such as its recent sell-out A Streetcar Called Desire starring Gillian Anderson).
The play is a nightmare scenario with Kinnear’s character Josef K being arrested for unstated crimes by agents from an unspecified agency on his 30th birthday. It is directed by Richard Jones.
